COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

Amber colored ale with a small white head. Has a decent amount of carbonation, though is a little light on flavor. Still a solid, enjoyable beer.

This is the best amber ale I have had! The beer has a creamy head and taste, with a bit of a malty finish. Great everyday beer.

bwa5879 (685) - Portage, Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Dark amber/mahogany pour with half an inch of white head. Scent of very sour/rubbery and earthy pale malt, sweet hay too. Slightly low carbonation, average light mouthfeel, clean finish. Smooth mix of flavors: carmel malts, piney hops, earthy burton-y pale malts. Nice easy drinking beer thats robustness is unmatched.

DocJitsu (990) - Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Pours a very murky amber-golden color with a half finger beige head. Mild toffee, grass, and fried egg nose. Nearly viscous mouthfeel with too much prickly, effervescent carbonation. Toffee, orange, and grassy flavors.

From 12oz bottle. Pours a (are you sitting down?) nice amber with a bit of light colored head. Mild aroma, with slightly bitter taste and aftertaste. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled. Pours cloudy amber with white head. Some malty caramelness and some hops kick. Pretty well balanced beer.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2013 Another really good session beer from Bells. This will probably be one of my session beers from now on. What does it taste like? It taste like a regular beer should. If a macro brewery could produce this cheaply, the micro breweries would go out of business. Iím glad they canít, just means more of a selection for us.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with an off-white head that settles down to a film. Aroma is primarily malt with some hops in the background. Medium body, taíste copies the aroma. Slightly bitter finish. Great beer, one of my "go to beers".

Pours a hazed amber orange. Cloudy with a loose head of foam that fell fast to a thin ring. Leaves soapy lace to fall as you drink. Nose is faint. If I dive right in I can get some light caramel and bread and the faintest hop floral. Taste is mild. The grain is toasted to amber perfection and has a nice round and full flavor that presents a natural sweetness but the caramel is almost too faint to be observed on the palate. it tastes like whole grain bread. As it warms it starts to develop a hop floral that is a bit sweet on the nose and in the drink. It has soda like carbonation so quite strong. It finishes with a bit of bitter but mid palate itís just bland. It could have used more malt depth and more malt sweetness. The body of the beer is thin and has a bit of slickness to it. Finishes semi dry with an aftertaste of flaked cereal grain. There is a hint of citric tartness also int he finish but it seems like too little , too late.
